[Solved] Can't connect serial with Energia

Recommended Posts

I just got a launchpad (MSPEXP430G2) and been playing with Examples code and they all load fine under Linux.

But I can't get any code that sample that use serial communication to work with MSP430G2452/2553 under Linux or Windows(virtualbox), like this one below:


Are all the supplied samples working or some of them still not ported to the MSP?

  ASCII table
 Prints out byte values in all possible formats:  
 * as raw binary values
 * as ASCII-encoded decimal, hex, octal, and binary values
 For more on ASCII, see http://www.asciitable.com and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII
 The circuit:  No external hardware needed.

 This example code is in the public domain.

void setup() 
  Serial.begin(9600); // msp430g2231 must use 4800

  // prints title with ending line break 
  Serial.println("ASCII Table ~ Character Map"); 

// first visible ASCIIcharacter '!' is number 33:
int thisByte = 33; 
// you can also write ASCII characters in single quotes.
// for example. '!' is the same as 33, so you could also use this:
//int thisByte = '!';  

void loop() 
  // prints value unaltered, i.e. the raw binary version of the 
  // byte. The serial monitor interprets all bytes as 
  // ASCII, so 33, the first number,  will show up as '!' 

  Serial.print(", dec: "); 
  // prints value as string as an ASCII-encoded decimal (base 10).
  // Decimal is the  default format for Serial.print() and Serial.println(),
  // so no modifier is needed:
  // But you can declare the modifier for decimal if you want to.
  //this also works if you uncomment it:

  // Serial.print(thisByte, DEC);  

  Serial.print(", hex: "); 
  // prints value as string in hexadecimal (base 16):
  Serial.print(thisByte, HEX);     

  Serial.print(", oct: "); 
  // prints value as string in octal (base 8);
  Serial.print(thisByte, OCT);     

  Serial.print(", bin: "); 
  // prints value as string in binary (base 2) 
  // also prints ending line break:
  Serial.println(thisByte, BIN);   

  // if printed last visible character '~' or 126, stop: 
  if(thisByte == 126) {     // you could also use if (thisByte == '~') {
    // This loop loops forever and does nothing
    while(true) { 
  // go on to the next character

Finnaly, I found solution:

Once programmed you need to unplug and keep reset button on launchpad pressed a few seconds to led kernel enough time to load the module, before pluging the usb cable again. instead of using Energia serial monitor (which is buggy) I used Putty which has version for windows and Linux with following config in screenshot below
